Candace is an end-of-life doula, funeral celebrant and registered funeral provider (reg. no. F0000562U) who believes that one of the most life-affirming things a person can do is to prepare for one's death. She has worked with people in transitions of many kinds over the last 19 years, from recovery from addiction, through family turmoil, to end-of-life care and families in grief. She sees her role as helping individuals plan for and have their preferred death, and helping families embrace and support not only the dying person but each other to the greatest extent possible. 

Candace is on the Board of Directors for Holistic End of Life & Deathcare Australia (HELD). Other memberships include the Australian Home Funeral Alliance (AHFA), Natural Death Advocacy Network (NDAN) and Palliative Care Victoria (PCV). She holds a BA in Human Development and a MSc in Transpersonal Psychology. In addition to doula training with Preparing the Way and celebrancy training with Sally Cant, she also has trained in addictions counseling, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy and ASIST suicide prevention.
